This surgeon was submitted to G.O.S. by Peter Gordon. Peter commented in his entry:

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Cross and his team at the Hospital for Special Surgery. They work like a well-oiled machine. From the time of my first phone call to my most recent post-op consultation I knew I was in the hands of a pre-eminent surgical team. The days prior to my operation contain numerous phone calls making sure I knew where I was going and what I should expect. My stay at the “Hotel for Special Surgery” was flawless. I even liked the food – I compared it to high-end diner fare). The nurses and assistants were wonderful and were focused on managing my (intense) pain. I am returning on Oct 9, 2020, for my left knee and am actually looking forward to it. I obviously highly recommend Dr. Cross and his team.
